This story highlights the tension between a human response and the response of faith. Jesus had already instructed his disciples that they were going to the other side of the lake. In the meantime, a “furious squall” hits the boat, causing the disciples to panic (which is the normal human response).
We face the same situation when we live in the space between receiving God’s promises and experiencing the fulfillment of those promises. In that in-between space there is often challenges and discouragement. Jesus is able to remain calm – asleep – because he knows that he is in control.
